Book Haul – 10 August 2020

Over the last couple of weeks I have been lucky enough to receive a fantastic collection of recent and upcoming releases.  Most of these books are pretty amazing and a couple are some of my most anticipated releases for the second half of the year.  As a result, I thought I best do a book haul post in order to share what I have gotten.  Each of the following books should be pretty fantastic and I look forward to reading them all.

 

How to Rule an Empire and Get Away With It by K. J. Parker

How to Rule an Empire and Get Away With It

The first book I am going to feature on this list is How to Rule an Empire and Get Away With It by K. J. Parker.  This is an incredible novel that I have been really looking forward to as it serves as a sequel to one of my favourite books of last year, Sixteen Ways to Defend a Walled City.  I have actually already finished How to Rule an Empire and Get Away With It (I honestly could not resist reading it) and it turned out to be another outstanding and wildly entertaining read.  I am hoping to get a review up for it soon, and I am planning to award it a full five-star rating due to how amazing it is.


Execution
by S. J. Parris

Execution is an awesome sounding historical murder mystery that I have been eagerly awaiting for some time.  I am a big fan S. J. Parris’s Giordano Bruno series of books and I look forward to seeing how its fantastic sounding mystery unravels.

Moonflower Murders by Anthony Horowitz

Now this one sounds interesting.  The Moonflower Murders is a new murder mystery novel from bestselling author Anthony Horowitz, and it has a rather cool premise to it.  This should prove to be an interesting read and I look forward to seeing how it turns out.


To Sleep in a Sea of Stars
by Christopher Paolini

This is another one that I have been really looking forward to for a long time.  To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is an impressive sounding science fiction epic from Christopher Paolini, author of the iconic Inheritance Cycle series of young adult fantasy novels.  I am a major fan of Paolini’s prior novels and I am rather excited to see how his new book turns out.  To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is a pretty massive book, so I am going to have to carve out a bit of time read it properly.


Hidden in Plain Sight
by Jeffrey Archer

Hidden in Plain Sight is the upcoming book from Jeffery Archer which will serve as a sequel to his 2019 release Nothing Ventured.  This new book looks set to feature some intriguing new criminal cases for the protagonist and I am excited to read this book soon.

Malorie by Josh Malerman

Malorie is an intriguing sounding novel that will serve as a sequel to Bird Box, Malerman’s best selling novel.  I am not too familiar with Bird Box, but this sequel sounds rather interesting and I am curious to see what happens in it.

Blunt Force by Lynda La Plante

The final book featured in this article is Blunt Force by Lynda La Plante, which is the sixth book in the Jane Tennison series.  The Jane Tennison novels are a great historical murder mystery series that serve as a prequel to La Plante’s Prime Suspect television series.  I have been really enjoying these compelling books (make sure to check out my reviews for Good Friday, Murder Mile and The Dirty Dozen) and I cannot wait to see what happens in this latest entry.

 

That’s it for this latest Book Haul post.  Let me know which books interest you the most in the comments and I will try to get to them sooner. Now, I better get back to reading.
